I want to personally welcome you all to our 100th show. I’m not gonna lie, this shit wasn’t easy. You know that expression, “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”? What they don’t tell you about it is you’ll never work a day in your life because no one will pay you to do that shit. It’s been a costly effort and taken time, money and our social lives but we wouldn’t change a thing. Well, maybe that money part…I like money.
Anyhow, for our 100th show, we thought we’d all bring it back to when we were young, fresh faced and still trying to be good at this and what better way than a clip show? No better way god damn it, no better way. So we start off with the show that aired immediately after our last clip show (show 10), with Push to Talk (R.I.P.) and take it all the way through some of our favorite moments of the last 89 shows. We’ll touch base with favorites like The Lawrence Arms and lesser noticed (but equally great) moments with bands like New Mexican Disaster Squad. It’s been a zany ride and we have the audio to prove it.
If you thought something should have made the cut or just want to say “what’s up” send us your thoughts at SoundSceneRevolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on myspaces or here in our comments. We’ll be back next week with new content, and soon the inevtiable “Warped Tour” Series. I normally close with some silly topical quote but I won’t let Sarah Palin sully our milestone. Just remember, we are, hands down, the best goddamn podcast on earth. Period.

So we finally got our shit together and here it is, this weeks interview with Push to Talk. So why the hell should you care? Not only are these guys an awesome band and a funny interview, not only do they have an album coming out on Doghouse Records and a national tour in the works BUT they played a show in front of Carson Daly. That’s right people, Carson “T-R-Muthafucking-L” Daly. So really what more do you need or want?
The story behind this interview is that Push to Talk keyboardist (Brett) went to a little private school known as Junipero Serra in San Mateo. Here he played bass in a band called Spishak (with Nate of Push to Talk). They played shows, put out some albums, played with American Steel and then decided that oiling up dudes was more important than rock. I lost track of Brett for several years before I finally found he’d resurfaced with Push to Talk. Excited to utilize nepotism to fill up empty slots in our schedule we set up an interview. I didn’t know at the time that I’d really end up liking the music that they play or that they’d be an awesome interview but I did and they are. So you should really listen, plus this interview may cure herpes (just like dianetics cures illness).
Anyhow, be sure to link us on your little blogs/myspace/livejournal and tell all your friends how rad we are. As always you can send us your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org or at our comments section. Also, be sure to add us on Myspace. We need lots of friends so we can send out those bulletins that are 50 stupid questions we answered because we were bored (seriously, is that the best way people can kill time?). So enjoy the interview and help us out, it’s what Carson Daly would want.
